You aren’t going to like this...Just following from discussion on Europa thread, I think both euro tournaments need to be re formatted. You want group stages to be best 16. Look at current CL, a number of groups already decided. Europa group stage is boring as all hell with too many poor teams.
So CL - top 8 seeds straight into 16 team group stage
Next tier of 8 into last qualifying round.
32 teams then play knockout, top 8 join second 8 for final round of 16 knockout
Then group stage begins. Having 16 group makes far more interesting games and closer qualification battles.
Worse than Faubert / Gravesen? That takes some beating.Huge win for Alaves over Real Madrid. Courtois with a massive mistake.
I reckon that Mariano is Real Madrid’s version of Jesse Lingard but even worse. Every time I watch him play, he gives me the impression that he is the worst player in Real Madrid's history. His final act of the match was to attempt an overhead kick with the defender and a teammate within a centimetre of him and he kicks the defender flush in the face.
They've only just introduced it at our level and I think it's ridiculously unfair on other teams as it makes it even easier for us.We have heaps of players on int duty getting COVID and getting injured in extra games. If most leagues have 5 subs during this congested pandemic ridden season, then so should the prem. Or at least cancel INT football during this pandemic.
